Residing in the Premier League (PL) relegation zone, Burnley (W1, D2, L6) haven’t lost as many games in their opening nine top-flight fixtures since 1888/89. Furthermore, they’ve failed to score in a league-high 66.67% of their PL matches, whilst nine (52.94%) of 17 conceded goals came after the 60th minute.
All four of their PL home matches saw one side fail to score (W1, L3), and fans might be tempted to take an extended (virtual) HT break as Turf Moor is yet to witness a league goal between the 25th and 60th minute this term. However, the ‘Clarets’ have scored in the last 22 top-flight H2Hs held here (W9, D6, L7).
Everton have just one win from their previous five PL games (L4), and whilst PL away favourites have a 80.56% unbeaten rate ahead of this gameweek, Everton’s poor recent form could continue as they are the only side to have lost twice as an away favourite (W2, L2). Worryingly, they’ve also failed to keep a clean sheet since matchday one, and have conceded four goals from outside the box this term.
The visitors haven’t drawn away this PL season (W3, L2) and they’ve conceded exactly twice in each of their last three such fixtures. Starting well could be crucial as the ‘Toffees’ have a perfect league away record after scoring first (W3), and only Manchester United’s PL games have produced more first-half goals on average than Everton’s 1.8.
